Nike Air Max LeBron VIII (8) – Black/White/Red – Detailed Photos »

Jul 3, 2010 at 1:41 am | lebron-viiishoes

New photos presenting the next LeBron James shoe have surfaced the Internet. It’s the Nike Air Max LeBron VIII in the standard Black, White and Red colorway. This time the shoes are in Men’s size 9, so there’s no place for excuses about any disproportions caused by a smaller frame. In fact, the AMLVIII looks much better now. However, I still don’t like one thing. The upper combines luxurious looking Flywire / Carbon fiber panels with nubuck material, which feels cheap. We’ve been used to an extensive use of Patent Leather in the past, however, regular leather or mesh of some kind would be a better choice here. There are a number of interesting details including a woven patch on the back of the tongue, which reads “DESIGNED AND ENGINEERED TO THE EXACT SPECIFICATIONS OF MR. LEBRON JAMES 828”. Yesterday we asked you about a new logo for King James. In this case the only one present is the Lionhead on the top of tongue. Seems like it has an edge for now. More photos after the break.

    NIKE, please.. DON’T DO THAT! it’fugly as hell ;/

  • Wow… now i think that visual of shoe is strange… I don’t like of the position of nike logo, the view of side still ugly

  • ENDs

    they should cover up the fly wire on the forefoot area and only leave the rear panel exposed, if nike wants this shoe 2 look somewhat good for off the court use which is there biggest profit they need to make this shoe look cleaner, maybe they are trying to hide the fact that the upper is similar to the jordan X, but its ugl plain and simple fix this please nike

  • beavertron17

    nubuck? seriously?

  • michael

    I dnt kno why everyone is hating on these….these r fire i love how they look it has a jordan 6 look too them it will take a while for them grow on people…lebron 8s and a pair of fresh jeans and a fitted and im good

  • brad b.

    These are okayy. I’ll admit, they’re not what i expected i thought the lebron 8’s were going to be a whole new level, something new and creative looking. But hey, it says they were desgined specifically to lebron and what he wanted. since its his shoe, what we say doesnt do shit.

  • LeBron James

    This is LeBron. This is the ugliest shoe I have ever seen. %$#^ This Real Talk!

  • LeBron James

    ^#$@^ I rather wear my old shoes than this. Make me a LBJ6 Logo or the Lionhead or dunkman logo. This needs more creativity. I will not wear this shoe at all in-game.

    For me, honestly this are wack! I wonder what’s J Petrie is thinking…, and again what’s with those swoosh laying always at the back again for the 2nd time? And uh nubuck huh? This is the first time i felt a Lebron sig with no wow-factor. Maybe a little colorway should make me feel this are good enough maybe.

  • LRJ6

    @moe23 DUUUUUDE, it’s just a friggin’ sample, don’t nag there like it will never have improvements. Of course it still has flaws. Just be patient. So for the mean time…. Just shut your mouth and let the Nike guys do their thing.

  • g’d up

    that air bubble is just too damn big. I especially hate how it extends on the heel of the shoe. good luck on trying to get a lot of wears out of these.

  • flight23

    i hope they plan to change the design cuz these shoes are ugly

  • Marko

    i don’t like the lebrons anymore!!!

  • wowoweezee

    I think that the 7s look better; but, these are ok. LeBron 8 would be special because these would be his first sneakers as a Heat!!! Champioship baby!!!

  • 6gtyug
